blueberry syrup

I got 4lbs of blueberries free as a special offer with my groceries – yum! I’ve munched my way through over 2lbs of them so far(!), but thought it might be good to try some blueberry recipes.

Blueberry syrup

blueberry syrup and pancakes

1 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water


  1. Bring ingredients to a boil in a saucepan.
  2. Simmer for a few minutes until the berries are soft.
  3. Squash the berries with a potato masher or the back of a spoon.
  4. Either serve as is, or push the syrup through a sieve with the back of a spoon to filter out the skins.

After straining, I was left with just under 2/3 cup of fresh blueberry syrup. Simple, and delicious served over pancakes!
